Surrounded by brilliant pastoral countryside, Gatehouse of Fleet lies on the South coast of Scotland on the estuary of Big Fleet of Water, which provides endless activities for tourists and locals alike. There is a wealth of sailing facilities and plenty of rowing boats that can be hired for a day out on ‘The Fleet’. There are also four fantastic beaches which line the mouth of the river and are all just a short drive away from Gatehouse, so you can enjoy a full day of the beach. All of the beaches moor boats and yachts on their shores and boast beautifully clean waters perfect for the kids to spend the day splashing around.
